Registration deadline is the Monday prior to the course start date unless the course is full prior to that.

The entire balance for a TLC course is due 90 days after the start date of the course unless other arrangements have been made with the Financial Officer. Any registrations made within 5 days of the start of the course must be paid in full at the time of registration. Tuition payments are only transferable to another TLC course within the same calendar year or to a substitute participant for the same course. Cancellations must be e-mailed to TLC’s Registrar:

For all courses except Graduate I and Graduate II: Cancellations received at least 14 calendar days prior to the course will receive a full refund. Cancellations received 13 – 6 calendar days prior to the course will receive a 50% refund. We regret that no refunds can be made 5 days or less prior to the start date of the course.

Graduate I and Graduate II Course Cancellation Policy: As of 2019, both these courses will be by application, rather than by registration.
